Adaptive Reuse

M3 Practitioner Application-Adaptive Reuse
Your M3 Practitioner Application will require devoted inquiry, assimilation, reflection, and
refinement in order to achieve the highest possible score. Specifically, you are to take the
scenario listed below, address it in full, and submit your work in accordance with the instructions
contained herein. Importantly, this is an independent assignment to be completed by you and
you alone.

Your M3 reading assignments include an article on adaptive reuse (see “Adaptive Reuse in the
Healthcare Industry: Repurposing Abandoned Buildings to Serve Medical Missions”), a practice
which has vast implications for healthcare strategy. It also represents a very good opportunity for
you to leave your “desks” and get out into the field to explore possibilities. Here’s the scenario:
A dentist desires to establish a clinic in or around your given marketplace and he has reached
out to you for assistance. He will serve as the sole dentist within the given clinic and he will offer
the customary array of services available at most any general dentistry practice. The dentist
desires operational efficiency and also takes opportunities where possible to make
environmentally responsible decisions. Having learned of adaptive reuse, he enlists you to
search the local marketplace seeking abandoned and available commercial buildings which
might be able to be converted into a dental practice through adaptive reuse. Your mission is to
identify three potential adaptive reuse candidates in your area, identifying their physical address,
describing them in detail, and ranking their potential to be converted successfully. The
candidates must be actual commercial properties which currently are for sale, so best to consult
commercial real estate websites and conduct good old-fashioned, boots-on-the-ground
investigations to identify prospects. Feel free to supply links in your text to real estate listings, if
available, or other resources to identify your selected candidates. If no such properties exist in
the immediate market, expand its boundaries until you find accommodations meeting desired
Note that in the real world, a project such as this would represent quite the undertaking, requiring
possession of an extensive array of information (e.g., spatial needs, financial resources
available, location preferences, etc.). Such rich detail (and the time needed to make use of it)

isn’t available due to obvious course parameters, but you certainly have sufficient time to perform
a cursory examination within your local marketplace for purposes of identifying a few potential
candidates. That’s exactly what you must do, and through this, you’ll have a better understanding
of adaptive reuse.
